Knitted Boot Toppers or Gloves

with Janet Conner, BS


Boot toppers are actually a folded over cuff which can reveal a lacy or a cabled side, as desired. Both patterns introduce you to knitting in the round, picot edgings, and a simple lace pattern that is easy to memorize. Kits include pattern and enough hand-dyed 100% wool yarn to complete one pair of mitts (fingerless gloves) or boot toppers. Demonstrations will be provided for managing circular knitting on double point needles, picot bind offs and cast ons, and an easy lace pattern.

Prerequisite: Attendees must be able to knit, purl, cast on and bind off, and have recently completed one hand-knit project. No beginners please.

Required: #6 (gloves) or #8 (boot toppers) double pointed needles, or contact the teacher at, in advance, if you wish to purchase needles in class. Kits $20/ea, additional yarn $15, payable to the instructor.
